e 108 year curse is over for the Chicago Cubs as they clinch their first World Series since 1908 after a nail biting battle on Wednesday night. It came down to a winner take all game seven. The Indians who were trying to break a seven decade drought of their own had made a dramatic comeback in an eighth inning game-tying home run by Rajai Davis.

The game went two extra innings, where a rain delay left some wondering whether the baseball gods didn't want either team to win. But the Cubs came back in the top of the tenth, as series MVP, Ben Zobrist who won another championship ring last year with the Kansas City Royals knocked them back into a lead they wouldn't relinquish.
00:00:42
The Cubs holding on to win 8 to 7. General manager Theo Epstein winning praise for ending a second historic drought just like he did 12 years ago for the Boston Redsox. This time breaking the curse of the Billy Goat for Chicago. While the Cubs walked away with the trophy, the Indians now hold the record for the longest stretch without a championship in baseball.
